Hey Robbie,
I'm in Japan, Kansai area. I find advanced brewing a bit expensive but they have a pretty good assortment. You could try sakeland.net as well. Assortment is less but prices more friendly. I mostly order from them.

That said, hops are so expensive in Japan I have them send from Holland to save a buck!:) So I usually just order grains in japan.

Advanced brewing and sakeland are both pretty good. If you want to give some business to a great guy, a fellow foreigner/brewer who's started his own brewing supplies business then have a look at the link below. He goes by the name of Tektonjp on HBT. I just got my first shipment, ordered two days ago and arrived at my door, this morning. Great service.:mug:

Also, if you can use and store grains in bulk, 20 kg sacks are very reasonably priced at Asahi malts, based in Shiga prefecture, I believe. Last time I bought from them was about three years ago and they cost about ¥3,800 each plus ¥600 per sack for transportation, this was a German Pilsener malt and an English Pale Ale malt. They had a decent selection, from what I remember.

I'm moving from London to Tokyo in May and have been checking the availability of homebrew supplies in Japan. Things have definitely improved compared to the last time I lived in Japan. But yikes, hops are expensive. Maybe I'll make a bulk purchase and bring it all with me (although now I imagine getting stopped at customs at Haneda with 100kg of hops....)
